If you think my skin has a fresh glow, it’s all thanks to one of the latest aesthetic treatments from Kings Hill clinic Illuminate. The experts there, headed by founder Dr Sophie Shotter, can tighten loose or sagging facial skin and improve skin texture using Venus Viva technology. This uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency and Smartscan technology to deliver energy through the epidermis to the dermis, generating heat in the process, while stimulating fibroblasts and rebuilding collagen. The results are tighter skin and improved skin texture. The treatment, which feels like a series of mild pin pricks, is given via a hand-held device at a setting that matches your particular facial concerns and can be also be used to reduce acne, rosacea, pigmentation and wrinkles. There’s a bit of redness after, particularly to the sensitive neck area, but with me it faded very quickly. After four sessions,
I’m thrilled with the results.
